Return to Ravnica Sealed Deck: Initial Thoughts by Tom Harle

Right, so after sadly being unable to make the prerelease for Return to Ravnica I've now done enough sealed decks and drafts to vaguely think I know some things worth talking about it this awesome new format.

Anatomy of a Draft: A Beginners Guide to MTG Drafting, by...

This week I want to really break down the thought processes that you should be going through during a draft.

Return to Ravnica Cards and Standard Deck Ideas by Tom Harle

So the full spoiler is now up and, rather than going through everything card by card I'll just finish talking about the cards I think are going to be most impactful:

Return to Ravnica: What Each Guilds Offer with Tom Harle

So it's spoiler season and that means every half baked Magic writer gets to air their pointless opinions on cards that will soon be played in a completely unknown format! Never one to buck the trend here are some of my ramblings on what has been spoiled so far:

How to Draft M13 and the Mana Base by Tom Harle

Today i'm going to talk you through a recently m13 8-4 draft and then talk a little bit more about something I touched on last time – limited mana bases and how you can try and affect them during the drafting process.

Really great service - from the comprehensive information on the website to the well packaged MTG cards when they arrived. The free cards I received when part of my order was delayed speaks volumes for the customer service Manaleak provides. Just placed my second order, and I'm sure there'll be many more. Thank you.
As I sit here drinking my tea and writing this short review, I look at my (recently used) Chaos Predator tank and reminded myself about my game that was played at Manaleak.com in Birmingham... The exterior is, infact misleading, and upon entering the complex, the interior was as if I entered an office! Climbing up the stairs and following the signs, I finally arrive at Manaleak.com; the place was lovely and spacious, full of refreshments and essentials needed for all sorts of games, be it tabletop or card games! Store manager was pretty cool, allowed me and a friend to play a game of Warhammer 40k (even took photos of the game, swell guys!) but I suppose what has impressed me is their knowledge and awesomeness, as well as the atmosphere - which was pretty cool... Service was pretty good too, I might add! I'd highly recommend Manaleak.com to all sorts of people, even if it’s just a catch up with some friends or (in my case!) battling over tabletop supremacy!!!
Very pleased with order, shipped and arrived promptly. Staff were helpful with the changes I made, and the prices were good. The free rare I got looks interesting as well. The website seemed a bit slow, though.
